Vogt made his third start at first base in the game and extended his hitting streak to nine games. He has hit .366/.394/.538 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 93 at-bats. If Vogt continues to post elite numbers at the plate, the team could decide to give him more action at first base in an attempt to play both hot-hitting catchers at one.
Adrianza, who takes the roster spot of Juan Perez, had been sidelined since June 21 while recovering from a hamstring strain. He returns to a .213/.259/.267 line in 75 at-bats.
Perez served as a defensive replacement Wednesday but didn't record an at-bat. He has hit .156/.208/.267 with one home run in 45 at-bats with the Giants.
Luetge has made three appearances with the Mariners this season, all coming in April. He gave up two earned runs in 2 1/3 innings over those three outings while striking out two, walking two and surrendering one home run.
Pryor was just recalled earlier Wednesday and pitched 1 2/3 innings in his team's loss, giving up one unearned run on one hit and two walks while striking out one. It was his first appearance of the season for the major-league team.
Hammel said that his thumb just cramped up and that it was the first time it had ever happened to him. He went on to finish the fifth inning after being visited by the trainer but didn't come out for the sixth with 99 pitches already in the bank. The minor issue shouldn't affect his availability moving forward.
Pence smacked a solo home in the fourth inning and added another RBi on an infield single in the sixth. It was the fourth time in his last five games that Pence recorded multiple hits, though the home run was his first since June 21. He has hit .302/.361/.478 with 12 home runs, 33 RBI and eight stolen bases in 364 at-bats.
One of the fractures was on the right side of the face above the nose, while the other is just below the nose. Doctors were also worried he may have suffered a concussion after a batted ball carommed off a protective screen and onto the bridge of his nose.
"The fracture is something that's going to get better and it's not going to affect me for the rest of my life," Beltran said. "And the concussion — I got hit in the face. They want to make sure — hopefully tomorrow I wake up feeling better. No headache, less symptoms than today."
Elias (7-8) has now lost three straight starts while giving up 16 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings during the poor stretch. He's a candidate to lose his rotation spot coming out of the break if he can't get his production turned around quickly. Elias owns a 4.54 ERA and 96:40 K:BB ratio in 113 innings.
Gibson (8-7) was removed after six innings despite throwing just 91 pitches and having an eight-run lead with which to work. He's delivered scoreless outings in five of his last nine starts. Gibson owns a 3.92 ERA and 53:29 K:BB ratio in 101 innings going into the All-Star break.
